Bracket How To - suggestions

Recommended Posts

MuskieJunkie

Here's my deal, I don't know squat about B-Ball and especially college hoops. But I like watching the tourney games and getting in on brackets. Usually I read an article or 2 go off that and fill in some random winners on my bracket, this never works. Does anyone have any suggestions on a better way to do some research?

what has worked for me is start out by filling out ALL the favorites. Now research online and pick a few upsets.

Stick with the favorites. People love to talk about the upset they picked, but usually they get a bunch wrong because they go upset crazy. Stick to the favorites mix in a few upsets, but don't go hog wild with them. To win a pool you usually need 4 of 4 final four teams(unless something like last years George Mason happens) and the winner right. Good luck

Do your homework!

Scour the internet, TV, and newspapers!

Listen to the experts!

Then pick the opposites.

Sure fire way for picking all the games.

Step 1 Take a dollar bill and go to the store and buy exactly 75 cents worth of hard salami.

Step 2 Bring the hard salami home with you in a clear plastic bag, making sure to put the remaining quarter you get back from the cashier in your left front pocket.

Note: Be sure to put the quarter into your left front pocket but be sure to do it with your right hand only, remember, your right hand only.

Step 3 Once at home, open a beverage of your choice but be sure it is in a can, bottles will not work, it has been proven by many scientists.

Step 4 Consume the 75 cents worth of hard salami, eating each slice with alternating hands, right then left then right until it is gone.

Step 5 Very important step. You must consume one can of the beverage of your choice with every 5 slices of hard salami and more importantly you must drink the beverage with the opposite hand that you are eating the hard salami with.

Step 6 After consuming all the hard salami and accompanying beverage of choice, remove the quarter from your left front pocket but this time be sure to remove it with your left hand, not your right.

Step 7 Start picking your teams by flipping the freakin quarter and calling heads or tails.

You will do just as good this way as all the other ways and at least you will have a good buzz on and will have eaten dinner!!!!

LOL

Good Luck Guys, get into our FM pools and may the best man win.

      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike
